LLVM release manager Hans Wennborg tagged LLVM 3.9.0-rc2 on Thursday and it's still looking like LLVM/Clang 3.9 could ship on schedule next week.

Hans noted in the RC2 announcement, "This is a release candidate in the very real sense that if nothing new comes up, this is be what the final release looks like. There are currently no open release blockers, and no patches in my merge-queue."

So far the results from this second LLVM 3.9 release candidate are looking good, including on ARM/AArch64 architectures. based upon comments to that thread.

LLVM 3.9.0 is tentatively scheduled for release on 22 August pending no last minute delays.
